I hope I'm wrong, but this sign could be seriously endangered. Please read set description for more info. The big cone was constantly revolving when the store was open for business. I wish I had a photo with the neon lit.

Update: After writing to Dreyer's (who purchased Snelgrove in 1989), I received a reply that they are trying to donate the sign to a historical society. This hopefully means it will be preserved, but I'm still sad to see it leave its original home.

FURTHER UPDATE: It looks like the sign will stay put! Hooray! On the minus side, the bottom part of the neon ("This is America's Finest Ice Cream Store") has been stripped of tubing and painted over.
